Description

This function converts the values of a column variable within a dataset into comma-separated, character strings. The process is achieved by using another column of the same dataset as index.

simplifyResult(
  dataset,
  index_column,
  values_column,
  returnInDataframe = FALSE
)

Arguments

dataset

a data.frame containing the data

index_column

a character string or a numeric/integer value indicating the column which will be used as index.

values_column

a character string or a numeric/integer value indicating the column whose values will be converted into comma-separated, character strings.

returnInDataframe

a logical value indicating whether to return only the converted columns or to append the character strings to the dataset.

Value

If returnInDataframe argument is set to FALSE then a data.frame is returned with the unique values of the index column and the character strings of the values_column that correspond to each.

If returnInDataframe argument is set to TRUE then the original dataset is returned containing an extra column in which the character strings of the values_column have been appended.
